Signalling cues in social conversation: an exploration using real world stimuli
Eye gaze during a social interaction is not only a mechanism for taking in information, but also a signal in which we can direct attention and influence others. This ‘dual function of gaze’ is often overlooked in controlled experiments, with a lack of research using real people. My research explores how the tendency to look at the speaker during a conversation changes with the visual and auditory information presented.
